ALIQUID Lacquer - Puppy Love LE Charity Polish: Swatches & Nail Art

Hello, all! I've got a very special polish to share with you all today! In honor of "Adopt a Shelter Dog" month, Alison from ALIQUID Lacquer is releasing a limited edition charity polish called Puppy Love. It will be available through the month of October and a portion of the proceeds will be donated directly to the ASPCA! 

Alison's dog Trudy, and adorable pitbull who graces the ALIQUID polish labels, was a rescue dog and Alison wants to give a little back in honor of her. As my dog Fonzi (aka, the love of my life!) is a shelter rescue, this cause is near and dear to my heart as well and I think it's a great charity to support :)

As I mentioned before, Puppy Love will be available through the month of October for $11/bottle, with $5 per bottle being donated directly to the ASPCA. The ultimate goal is to donate $250 to the ASPCA so every bottle counts.

Puppy Love is a bright teal with some pink and gold iridescent flakes and some subtle holographic shimmer. The formula is great with super smooth application and I needed 3 coats to reach opacity. I even painted some cute little paw prints and dog bones over it! 
So why support this cause? Here's a little more info:

About 3.9 million dogs enter U.S. shelters every year, and 1.2 million dogs are euthanized (800,000 of them pit bulls). Adopt a Shelter Dog Month seeks to call attention to the plight of these animals and to encourage people to adopt dogs rather than going to a breeder. No matter your preferences, you're bound to find a rescue dog that fits perfectly into your home! Click here to read all about pet adoption, and click here to learn more about pit bulls!

The vision of the ASPCA is "a humane community in which all animals are treated with respect and kindness." Donations to the ASPCA support a variety of causes, including:

  • Grants to shelters nationwide
  • Spay/neuter and microchipping programs
  • Adoption, fostering and relocation programs
  • Investigation and seizure of abused animals
  • Lobbying for anti-cruelty legislation
You can purchase Puppy Love today from the ALIQUID shop for $11 and be sure to follow along them on Instagram and Facebook!

Happy Polishing :)
